Aquatech Awarded Contract for Chinese Industrial Water Treatment Facility

Nov. 30, 2015
The project will recycle coal mine wastewater for industrial reuse and will not discharge any liquid waste to the environment

Aquatech has been awarded a contract to provide a water treatment facility that includes wastewater recycle and zero liquid discharge technology for a coal-to-chemicals conversion project being developed by the Chinacoal Group, China's second largest coal producer. This is the second such plant that has been awarded to Aquatech by Chinacoal at the same location in Ordos City, Inner Mongolia.

Aquatech will design, engineer and supply the integrated water facility, and will supervise installation and commissioning. The company will provide a fully integrated and automated system that it has developed specifically for the CTX market utilizing Aquatech's proprietary and advanced AquaEZ technology.

The plant will recycle more than 9.6 million liters per day of wastewater generated by a nearby coal mine and eliminate all wastewater discharge. The recycled water will be treated to a high purity level and reused in the process facility.

Representatives from Aquatech and Chinacoal Group convened in a signing ceremony held on Nov. 22, 2015 during the 26th U.S.-China Joint Commission on Commerce and Trade (JCCT) in Guangzhou, Guangdong Province. The Honorable Penny Pritzker, the U.S. Secretary of Commerce, attended the event.

Established in 1983, the JCCT is the primary forum for addressing bilateral trade and investment issues and promoting commercial opportunities between the U.S. and China. High-level plenary meetings are held annually and are co-chaired by the U.S. Secretary of Commerce, the U.S. Trade Representative and the Chinese Vice Premier in charge of trade and investment issues.

The Aquatech project further boosts China's progress in addressing environmental impacts of industry. This project will not only enable Chinacoal to comply with statutory regulations but will also minimize the complex's overall water footprint, which is an important consideration because CTX projects require substantial amounts of water and are normally located in dry, water-stressed regions.

"We are very proud to not only be involved with such a great effort in water optimization and environmental sustainability for one of Asia's most water scarce regions, but also to do it as a repeat project at an existing facility. We see this as validation and recognition of the value we provide to our clients with our industry leading water recycling and zero liquid discharge technology," said Devesh Sharma, managing director, Aquatech.

"We are also grateful to the U.S. Department of Commerce for its support and for creating a positive atmosphere for trade with events like the Smart Cities trade delegation in which Aquatech participated last April as well as the follow-up events leading up to the JCCT. The U.S. Department of Commerce has assisted us in increasing our market visibility, which has helped us have a record year in China," he added.
